Great news Monday for Nashies!  CMT’s Nashville has been renewed for its sixth season and its only halfway through its fifth~

For season 6, the cable network ordered a 16-episode season to premiere early next year. Additionally, CMT has set June 1 for the midseason premiere of Season 5.

In casting news, former Desperate Housewives and Big Little Lies star, Jeff Nordling has joined the cast in a recurring role.  Nordling will play Brad Maitland, who is said to be an extremely successful, charming, egotistical, narcissistic owner of the most successful record label in Nashville.

According to Deadline, Nashville has done very well at CMT since moving to the network from its original home at ABC. The series, which wrapped its 13-episode Season 5 winter season last month punctuated by the death of Connie Britton’s Rayna James, ranks as the highest-rated and most-watched show in the network’s history, averaging 2.1M weekly viewers in L+7. Nashville has lifted CMT, whose total day ratings are up 19% with adults 18-49 and 25% with women 18-49.

To announce the renewal on Monday, series stars Charles Esten (Deacon) and Hayden Panettiere (Juliette) took to facebook live to tell the world and their crew the big news! Watch it here.

Doesn’t ABC realize yet how many fans stopped watching ABC when they said no more soaps or scripted entertainment? I didn’t start watching till the show moved to CMT! We want our soaps! So happy for Nashville!

And now my cable company done and removed CMT from my package. Thank God for other streaming opportunities!

ABC bungled this wonderful show. And the new show runners have saved it from being a footnote in the What Might Have Been book. Will always miss Connie Britton and Rayna James though. Still, a death in story or real life does bring out good and bad and new directions. Although some people are needed to help others succeed, even the most loved people in our lives can sometimes be roadblocks to growth.

Good for NASHVILLE. This show has finally become watchable with Zwick and Herskovitz in charge. They should’ve taken over years ago.

WATCH: Jonathan Jackson + Enation’s New Music Video “The Days Are Evil”

Five-time Daytime Emmy winner from General Hospital, and former Nashville star, Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky, Ex-Avery) has released a new music video for the new single “The Days Are Evil” along with his band Enation.

The music video features shots of Jackson in a very dark incarnation, and the track will also appear on Jackson + Enation’s upcoming album due out later this fall, Ultraviolet Empire.

Jonathan says of the new album: “Our new album, Ultraviolet Empire, is a throwback record. It’s a record we played together live in the studio. Most of the songs are one take -just letting the band play.  It was amazing playing with our co-producer Colin Linden and capturing something so raw and visceral.”

This will be the band’s follow-up to their 2017 album  Anthems for the Apocalypse and their successful 2018 tour in Europe opening for Echo & The Bunnymen,

Check out the music video featuring Jonathan released this week below.

Then, let us know, should Lucky return to Port Charles for the Nurses’ Ball with his band and play a tune off the new album next spring? Will Jonathan come home to GH for a guest appearance? Will you be checking out the new music from him in the coming months? Comment below.

NASHVILLE To Become Broadway Musical

Looks like the Music City drama, Nashville, originally on ABC and then on CMT, has more than nine lives! Now the popular soap is headed to the stage and Broadway after six seasons on the small screen.

The show is set to have a musical adaptation with 10-time Tony Award winner Scott Delman (American IdiotRagtimeBook of MormonHello, Dolly!Fun HomeMean Girls) in charge.  In addition, Delman will serve as lead producer of the show and he has acquired the live theatrical rights from Lionsgate and ABC Studios.

Nashville, with its complex, relatable characters and sweeping emotional gestures, has all of the narrative elements that I look for in great theatrical source material,” Delman said in a statement. “From that rich DNA, we will be building an original story with entirely original music, written by major Nashville and Broadway songwriters.  We are particularly excited to deliver Broadway’s first score of true contemporary country music — a genre that has exploded with mainstream audiences in recent years. Lionsgate has a treasure-trove of sterling IP, and I’m honored to be a part of this new phase of their live entertainment division.”

Additional information on the upcoming musical, including production dates and a creative team, is expected to be announced shortly.  Now the question becomes; will some of its beloved series stars be in the Broadway rendition of the series?
